Catalogue entry

The slight study of a tree at the centre of the page is inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation; the other way up is a continuation of the tree study on folio 47 recto opposite (D02064) and underneath all is a very slight note of hills and clouds. For comment on the tree studies in this book see the entry for the recto (D02062).
